The 2016 Queen City Awards: 10 Years of Bringing All Genres and Professionals Together!

20161210_181402

 

This year’s Queen City Awards left nothing to chance with multi-talented artists and individuals in attendance. Held December 10th 2016 at Community Outreach Christian Ministries in Charlotte NC, the event definitely heated up things that Saturday evening!

As nominees and attendees arrived, they were greeted by a red carpet affair that caught  much of the style and fashion that is synonymous to the Queen City Awards.  Keeping the crowd live and engaged was the people’s host, Cedrice “Nuff Ced” Brown, and music provided by DJ Phassad, a double hit of talent, perfect  for an event of this magnitude.  Artists such as Ryan Keziah, Cutty Cutwright, Fusion Force and a host of others brought stellar performances to this year’s Queen City Awards.

 

Topping the night; the presentation of the Trendsetter Award to R&B singer Sunshine Anderson and the Community Leader Award to business owner Shaun “Lucky” Corbett.  Each recipient reflected on their lives and the hard work , sacrifice and need to be examples to their family and community.

What is impressive is not just the talent that was in the building, but the fact that Kevan Glover has organized this event for ten years. Per his vision, one of the main reasons the awards show was created, was to let the world know about the artists in the Carolinas. This event showcases the various genres such as Rock, Hip Hop, Country, R&B, Gospel & also the individual arts that support them.

Each year, the Queen City Awards and the Konnected Foundation gives to charity, all the while providing a positive structure for the youth of the city to further enhance their interests in the arts. An example of this would be the Northwest School of the Arts.
